Former Shark Tank India judge Ashneer Grover recently reshared a post that shed light on how the reality show used his name to boost views.
Shark Tank India Season 3 has made a splash with a new set of entrepreneurs and the panel now includes 12 sharks, but it is the OG shark, Ashneer Grover, who continues to grab attention. Known for his candid and unfiltered conversations with pitchers, the former judge recently reshared a post that shed light on how the popular business reality show used his name to get big watching YouTube. The user shared a screenshot from the ongoing season from the video sharing platform, revealing that the Shark Tank India team is using #AshneerGrover in their caption to attract more viewers. A quick investigation reveals that many videos on the platform use his name in the captions, even though he was only part of one season.
For those who don’t know, Ashneer gained recognition for his appearance in the first season of the reality show, which quickly became a sensation due to its unique concept. However, the entrepreneur was removed from the show following an explosion in his previous company, BharatPe, which he played a key role in building.
In the second season, Amit Jain, founder of Cardekho.com, took over the role of Ashneer. Despite his absence from the show, Ashneer’s popularity has skyrocketed and many fans still express the desire of the makers to bring him back to the panel. Meanwhile, the X user who shared the screenshot of the show’s YT page, wrote, “#SharkTank using Ashneer Grover name’s for getting views #Doglapan.”
After his ouster from Shark Tank India, Ashneer Grover, who is known for his outspoken opinions, has taken digs at the showmakers on several occasions. Recently, when it was announced that there will be six new judges in season 3, Ashneer jokingly asked if they auditioned for season 4. Not only Ashneer but also the audience was surprised by this development. .
The new season saw the debut appearances of Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal, OYO founder Ritesh Agarwal and Inshorts CEO Azhar Iqubal. In a recent episode, Edelweiss Capital CEO Radhika Gupta appeared, with Acko General Insurance CEO Varun Dua and UpGrad Co-founder and Chairman Ronnie Screwvala set to follow.
